Wisconsin 101: This is how we eat
One advantage (perhaps the only advantage) of having a job away from the house is that I am now spending most of my time ten miles away from my refrigerator. It would be nice to lose the marriage 15 and fit back into my old clothes. I still have the Thin Jeans. They are upstairs in the dresser in the guest room, i.e., in The Drawer of Hope and Lost Causes. But maybe. Someday.
So what do I do? I come up north to visit family. I stay with my aunt, whose first words (almost) when I walk in the door are, "I just baked banana bread" and "Have you tried it with Nutella on top?"
The winters are long and cold up here. It's either eat or spend more money on heating.
